A New Approach to Treating Autism-Related Irritability

The clinical trial is evaluating an experimental drug, AB-2004, that offers a novel approach for the treatment of irritability associated with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). This study builds upon research that has shown there is a significant difference in the bacteria located in the gut, or digestive tract, of children with autism compared to those children who are not on the autism spectrum. Scientific evidence has demonstrated there may be a link between gut bacteria and the brain which could contribute to certain characteristics, such as irritability, in children with ASD.

AB-2004, which is a powder, is designed to selectively adsorb substances produced by bacteria in the gut and reduce their ability to enter the bloodstream and contribute to certain characteristics like irritability. The TAPESTRY Study is a placebo-controlled clinical trial that aims to show that treatment with AB-2004 can improve irritability in children with ASD. Eligible participants will be randomly assigned to receive AB-2004 or placebo.
